2nd Grade Walking Field Trip


The Goshen 2nd Graders went on a Walking Field Trip on Tuesday, May 14th.  Students left the school after announcements and walked to the Goshen Baseball Fields while looking for evidence of spring, uses of water, and animals in their habitats.  Classes then played an intense game of kickball.  Students then walked to the Goshen Cemetery where they learned about cemetery etiquette.  Students searched for different landmarks throughout the cemetery and enjoyed looking for the earliest birthday which turned out to be in the 1700's.  Students then walked to the Goshen Church Pavilion where they enjoyed a sack lunch and bubbles.  Students returned to the school exercised, enriched and exhausted.  It was a great day in 2nd!

May 6-10 is teacher and staff appreciation! Write a kind note, draw a picture, or just say, "thanks!" to your awesome teachers and staff at Goshen Elementary!

Buddy Bench

Our Hope Squad with Mrs.Openshaw in front of the Buddy Bench.

We are excited to announce that Goshen Elementary now has a BUDDY BENCH! A buddy bench is a designated spot for a student to go if they don't have a friend to play with. Students will then go to the student on the bench and ask them to play. We have talked with our students about the importance of including everyone! 

Reading Challenge!


Our reading challange is getting a little crazy this year!

We have a goal to read ONE MILLION minutes this school year! We are getting so close. For a little extra incentive, the teachers and staff of Goshen Elementary are getting a little creative. The student who reads the most minutes from May 1-17 will get to CUT Mrs. Openshaw's hair! The top 3 readers in each class will get to TAPE Mr. Hunt to the wall! Other readers will be able to PIE a teacher, receive books, or other prizes! Encourage your students to read, read, read! Please make sure reading calendars come back to school for April and May. 

Ambassador of the Month!


These are our Ambassadors of the Month for April! The theme for April was Encourage Others. These students stood out to their teachers for lifting others up and making our school a better place! 

Mrs. Larson's 2nd Grade Learns to Weave

Mrs.Larson's 2nd grade students are learning to weave.  They read the story "The Goat In The Rug" and are practicing the art of weaving.  They started out by weaving with paper and are now making small rugs of their own.  Weaving takes time and patience but also so much fun!       



Jazz Swing Ensemble


We enjoyed a fun assembly learning about Jazz music.  We learned about their instruments and how mood affects the sound of the music.  We sang with them as they shared their music.
